They also award money for people working towards amphibian conservation, including children! Conserve It Forward Founder Avalon Theisen was awarded the Save the Frogs! Nate the Newt Award for Amphibian Conservation in 2011, and the Save the Frogs Day Award in 2012, both of which have helped enable Conserve It Forward to grow!

What are some cool products to help me save frogs?
The Digital Frog 2.5 software is divided into dissection, anatomy and ecology sections at the Main Menu which lets you easily focus where you want! I love that they have an ecology section, because it helps the user understand how people and frogs relate in the real world. You learn about things like behavior,and biodiversity, and very importantly, you learn about ways you can help, like with the Adopt-a-Pond program. Using The Digital Frog 2.5 software will not only save live frogs from dissection, but will also help you learn about environmental concerns, and lead you to finding ways that you can help save frogs and the environment!

This software is so fun, doesn’t cost a lot of money, and allows us to learn to dissect frogs and learn anatomy without bad smells, expensive equipment and without killing frogs! The people at Froguts are great, too, so that’s even better! Froguts is great virtual dissection and lab software and I have used it since early 2011. Froguts has also been an awesome sponsor of our Tampa area Save the Frogs Day in 2011, 2012 and 2013!
If you have a pool, then you need a Critter Skimmer. It replaces your old skimmer lid with a new one that has a spiral ramp that leads to an opening in the cover so frogs and other small animals can escape your pool. I live in Florida, and our pool has a Critter Skimmer. If you have a pool, make sure you check these out!

Thanks to Mrs. Kennedy and her students for suggesting the following life cycle link! I love to hear from people who find my the Conserve It Forward site helpful and want to add to it! - Avalon
